Concrete Scanning

Line Locators can quickly locate rebar, find conduits and identify post-tension cables before it’s too late.Drilling or cutting through concrete floors, walls or ceilings can be dangerous and very costly if you don’t know what is under the surface.

Since our equipment is not harmful to people working in the area, as it may be in other technologies such as x-ray, there is no need for you to evacuate your staff while our field technicians scan the site.

So You Want to Drill There?

This is why you MUST GPR (ground penetrating radar) scan concrete before you core drill!

In the gallery below the red cables are POST-Tension (PT) cables, the brown and green lines are steel re-enforcing bars (RE-BAR), and the grey lines are electrical lines.

GPR Concrete Scanning Applications

  • Rebar locating
  • Post-Tension Cable locating
  • Conduit locating
  • Locate Radiant Heating Pipes locating
  • Concrete inspection
    Locate metallic and non-metallic targets in walls, floors
  • Structure inspection
    Bridges, monuments, walls, towers, tunnels, balconies, garages, decks
  • Condition assessment
    Map relative concrete condition for rehab planning
  • Measure slab thickness
  • Void location


In addition to imaging and marking the site for objects located in concrete we can also provide detailed mapped reports. These reports include diagrams of the scanned areas with locations and depths of located anomalies plotted to scale.
